Their supportive culture makes a huge difference to employees who want to be great moms and great workers."

Added Suzanne Riss, the editor-in-chief of Working Mother magazine, "As a working mother myself, I understand how absolutely essential it is for companies to find ways to nurture the personal and professional lives of employees. I commend Northern Michigan Regional Health System for conceiving and effectively implementing programs and benefits that offer an inspiring paradigm for the rest of corporate America: it is possible to be both family- friendly and financially successful."

"Achieving this recognition confirms and validates the ongoing positive changes in our hospital's culture," said Thomas C. Mroczkowski, President and CEO. "Each employee colleague at all levels of the organization is engaged and focused on quality patient care, on creating an environment where everyone can do their best work. From an on-site day care center, to support for adoptive parents, to generous maternity and paternity leaves, flexible work schedules, helpful services such as dry cleaning and take-home meals, and even a baby shower for our employee colleagues and their newborns, Northern Michigan Regional Health System is proud to be an 'employer of choice' in Michigan. Each and every day our staff is living our mission of caring for patients as they would for their own families. I am honored to accept the 2007 Working Mother 100 Best Companies recognition on their behalf."
